About the property


These two rustic and romantic 2-bedroom apartments are a part of a small complex and next door to each other.The complex is located in West Chianti close to San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Pisa and Florence. The bright and airy apartments are in a rebuilt granary "Il Granaio" and set on a hill and with spectacular views over the tuscan landscape and Volterra on the horizon. Both units are very romantic with four- poster beds, rustic, classic furniture, oil paintings and crystal chandeliers. Outside there is front and back garden and terrace. The swimming pool is only 20 metres from the apartments! The place is surrounded by unspoilt Tuscan nature and we leave a picnic basket for you to pack so you can go and explore it. In the morning you can open up the balcony doors, lie in bed and indulge in the breathtaking view and listen to bird song! In the evening you can enjoy the stunning sunset from the backside garden. Here you will experience the beauty of nature in the heart of Tuscany!

About Heidi Wikstrom

Our names are Heidi Wikstroem and Katja Wallentin, we are from Sweden and we are sisters and companions in our management company Trans Skandic Foervaltning AB and another company in transport business. We wanted to make an investment in our management company 2010 and after looking around we finally found these lovely properties in Tuscany!

Heidi Wikstrom purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Heidi Wikstrom chose Val d'Elsa

We are both in love with Tuscany and especially the San Gimignano/Volterra area. We are frequent Tuscany travelers since many years and this location we choose for our property investments couldn't be more perfect! It's just an hour from big cities such as Pisa, Florence and Siena, it's in the country but yet not in the middle of nowhere. It's only 1,5 km to the nearest restaurants and shop.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell totally in love with the view, it's really the most amazing views from any angle and with the historical town of Volterra on the horizon! The sunset from here is breathtaking! The properties and communal areas are built of high quality materials including the large swimming pool. The apartments are of very high quality and romantically furnished and here you will have conveniences such as air conditioning in every room (it gets very hot in summer!) We have property management at your service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Many thanks, your home is in a wonderful corner of Tuscany!" Georgina Baker Aug -13

"We had an excellent time, the location of the apartment was good being right in the centre of Tuscany within easy drives to Sienna, Florence and Pisa, along with close access to San Gimignano and the Chianti region. The views from the apartment were spectacular, especially at sunrise and sunset. We enjoyed the use of the swimming pool and found it very easy to relax and unwind in the apartment when not traveling out to one of the many places to visit. Not having contact with the outside world via the TV and internet is great as you can totaly switch off and chill. Our only disapointment was that we only booked the 6 nights at the end of our holiday, after which it was time up, we then had to return to the UK! Still we have lots of good memories (and photos) of our holiday which will stay with us forever" Michael Koltai Sep-13
